How do you decide on things?
Problem: I want to start riding horses again soon so that i may show again this summer. The women's horse I showed last summer, well she's not the best person to say the least. I'm not sure what would happen if I showed back up there, literally. Omg the stories I have. OR should i go to a new stable, that i know nothing about, and not even sure if they'll let me show their horses?
Maybe I could check out both?
for the past couple of months i've been excessively hungry, and i also feel like i'm incapable of losing weight. i eat a healthy vegan diet with loads of fruits and veggies, beans, nuts, etc. so i should be getting enough fiber to keep me full, but i'm still hungry all the time.
i've also been doing cycles of p90x since november of last year, but i haven't lost a single. pound. i realize that i've gained a lot of muscle, but (probably) not enough for my weight to be completely unchanged. i've also started running (2.5mi, 3 days/week) to help burn more fat, and i ride my bike over 20mi/week. i recently thought that maybe my body was in starvation mode because i was trying to eat less than 1000 calories/day, so i upped my intake to about 1300 calories, but i'm still not losing any weight. if anything, i think i'm gaining weight. (i weigh myself once every week or so.)
i know that weight loss doesn't occur overnight, but i've been actively trying to lose weight for over 6 months and haven't seen any drop in the number.
any advice, or words of wisdom? thanks.
it is jira_rd if you remember me under a new name!
Will you tell me a joke?
What is a show that you love to watch over and over again? I'm currently rewatching LOST (I only finished S2), but tomorrow I'm starting Stargate SG-1 over because holy crap ilu so hard crazy sci fi show.
How are you feeling right now? I'm drunk and lonely.
What would you like to see at the cook out? food/entertainment/whatever
What are your plans for tomorrow?
Also, can we all wake up and start posting now? I have missed tqc and I don't want it to be almost 3am quiet tqc time :(
If your dog has had teeth removed or had anesthesia will you tell me about it?
If previously yes, how many TQC posts about fringes did it take before you stopped mentally inserting someone with a gun into all these questions about bangs?
DK/DC/WTF are you on about, you crazy non-American-speaking-person: what linguistical oddities always make you stop and think before you realise what the poster's talking about?
A nice drunken night out for me. Anyone else?
What if she was smoking?
Inspired by a conversation I had with a friend earlier today.
What books are on your summer reading list?
What was the last thing you got hooked on?
Does anyone have any tried and true pickled onion recipes?
I'm thinking about getting a Wii. They're about 177 bucks right now and that comes with the remote and nunchuck, steering wheel and Mario Kart racing game.
Good? Yes? No? Advise meeeeee
ETA: That's a no to the DVDs then, I don't have Netflix either.
What are you thinking about buying?/What have you just bought?
unrelated, what's the first name of the last person you talked to?
What do you think the maximum number of times you've ever listened to a song on repeat is?
There's this woman that comes in at least every week or so to where I work and uber excitedly asks for our hot coffee. Keep in mind that I work in a gift shop in a botanical garden and our hot coffee is basically a powered mix and hot water that customers make themselves. She always just asks for coffee and never buys anything from the shop or asks for admission into the garden. She's always ecstatic and giddy when we have it and looks like someone ripped her heart out when we don't. It's really quite odd and a bit hilarious. We recently had a little café open up in the park that sells actual coffee and when I told her about it it looked like she was going to have a heart attack from joy.
There also used to be a cute little old man who barely spoke any English who would come into the shop, buy a box of our souvenir chocolate and go into the garden to watch DVDs on a portable DVD player. I never understood why he would pay admission for the garden if he was just going to watch DVDs. He could do that anywhere! He didn't have to pay for it.
DK/DC/Don't work in customer service: Are you a "regular" anywhere? Do the people who work there recognize you and know what you're going to ask for? Do you have any very specific or odd requests at any of the places you frequent?
If you could,would you want the power to run your country?
If you cook,what do you prefer homemade?
ETA: I really love the details that everyone posted. It gives me ideas on what makeup to use and the order to put them on. Thsnks! :D
how many months of doing this regularly would be okay? like 6?
Watching the video in this abandonedplaces post and then reading about the institution afterwards.
It's 60% cotton and 40% Polyester and very soft. Can I throw it in the dryer with a damp wash cloth to get the wrinkles out without it being ruined?
How do you feel about pop culture? What about sports players? Whenever the Yankees lose a game my dad always makes snide comments about those "poor millionaires." I get that their salaries are ridiculous, but stfu Dad I'm trying to grieve.
My dad and SO should totally hang out all the time, y/y?
DK/DC/single: Out of the cities you've visited, which is your favorite and why?
I am a poor college kid and seriously considering it.
PB: smooth or crunchy?
Each time the content has been similar, but I've felt the need to write it out from scratch based on the thoughts I had over the previous draft, but expressed more concisely.
How many times do you tend to have to draft out assignments before they're done?
According to others, there's really no discernable difference between sober me and drunk me. I maybe giggle more, but I'm still the girl who's trying to be super responsible and trying to prevent other drunk people from doing stupid shit even as I'm tripping over imaginary things.
What toppings would you suggest for a.hot dogs and b.mac and cheese?
a. ketchup, mustard, mayo(ew), relish, chili, cheese, raw onions, jalapenos,
b. goat cheese, bacon, caramelized onions, scallions, sour cream, hot sauce,
If we use Goo Gone or WD40 to help lift the leftover, will it keep a Rhino Liner or Cool Seal from adhering when we recoat the roof?

i hope that works, anyway.
since that's all done and dusted: how's your weather?
I always try to buy Peter Pan crunchy.
I've heard of it happening, but I've never met someone who said they had it happen.
ETA: also, TQC, this summer, should I "relapse" and start playing WoW again?
what's the last thing that made you laugh?
Are you an early adopter of new technology, someone who switches when convenient, or someone who holds onto their archaic technology as long as humanly possible?
(I am hoarding VCRs in fear of mine breaking)
Edit: Thanks, everyone! It works now. :)
Can you tell me about your brazillian experiences?
I've never had one but once when I was about 13 I went to get my eyebrows waxed and the woman thought I was getting a brazillian so she kept telling me to take off my pants, I was confused.
what is your favorite thing to cook? bonus points for recipes.
Did you know Dubai has morality cops?

The question: can anyone suggest some yummy Korean snacks -- and better yet, can photos (or links to photos) be provided so I can identify them at my local shop?
Sidenote: I'm vegetarian, so...!
I feel reasonably happy with the rest of my body but I feel like my arms are flab-tastic since I gave up swimming 5 days a week. I just want to tone up. I really don't want scary Madonna arms.
Bonus points for inexpensive or free ways of doing it. I really, really can't afford gym membership right now (hence no swimming).
My cousin is having a commitment ceremony with her fiancee over the fourth of July. They are registered at Bed, Bath & Beyond. I am a member at Ruelala.com and there is a Scanpan 6 piece knife set (including a utility knife) for $79.90 + shipping; retail value is $199.00. However, it is final sale, so I couldn't return it. They have a single utility knife on their registry that has not been purchased, it is by Wusthof.
I really want to get them the Scanpan set because I think it is nice and everything, and I'm all about getting a good value on gifts - I like to maximize the money I spend. I'm planning on spending $100.00 on them either way, but if I can get them something worth a lot more I'd prefer to do it that way. The reviews seem to be pretty good for the product, at least from what I've found.
So, TQC, what would you do? I am probably being totally awful for wanting to go off registry, huh? This is seriously the first wedding I've been invited to since I was in high school and went to my uncle's wedding, so I need educated in the ways of gifting.
I'm planning on getting one sometime in the near future, on the innermost part of my wrist so I want to know what I'm getting myself into.
ETA: I'd really appreciate some serious responses to this. I know tqc just likes to fuck around, but if anyone can help, that would be nice.
The Queen appears on the currency of 33 nations.
If you're in one of those nations, are you excited for when the Queen dies and all the money changes to Prince Charles? Are you equally or more excited for when money has William on it?? Won't it be strange to have royal dudes in her place on money after all this time???
The support page asked for my Service Key (like a serial number) and then picked out 24 updated drivers for me to download and install. It let me do a mass download. Is there any way to do a mass install of these things, or do I need to run each one individually?
2. DK/DC: Did Congressman Weiner ever send you one of his special photos?
3. Could God create a narcotic so powerful that not even HE could quit taking it?
I like horror, comedy, thriller, documentaries, anything really.
I'm gonna smoke and I'd like a good movie that grabs my attention. I was looking at I Am Number Four but idk yet. Help!
What flavour shall I make?
Nutella and peanut butter will be made after my next batch of strawberry. But after that I have no idea!
I'm not considering a home tattoo, I promise! I'm just curious what TQC thinks.
would texting him asking how he's doing be odd/seem weird/clingy/etc?
what should i say?
is there anything i can offer to do? i wanna be like, let me know if you need anything! but i mean, what is he going to need? i don't think he'd need me to come over and fix his mac and cheese. it seems silly to ask something i feel like i already know the answer to but i also want him to know that i ~~care.
what should i do?
*edit* i want to just steal the cat but im on probation for larceny so i would go to jail.
let's set the scenario: you've been together for a while and regardless of how long it's been, you're comfortable with each other. you've gotten into a routine, not necessarily a rut. you're happy, they're happy, but you're past the honeymoon period.
so surely you two joke with each other from time to time.
what has been the best, worst, or most apropos joke your SO has made about you?
for example, last night my boyfriend said this, TOTALLY JOKING: "you better not mix me another one of these drinks. one more of these and i'm gonna find you attractive."
Anyone else feeling crappy tonight?
What's going on in your life? Wanna talk about it?

Do you have any "before exam" routines? (eg. Exercise before the exam?)
